Abstract This thesis contains a production of articles from South America, with explicit focus on the socialist development, which many countries in the region have experienced since the beginning of this century. South America has made a left turn. The articles represent a journey through Bolivia, Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay, and the aim is to frame the development, so that it can be understood from a European perspective. The main part of the thesis, however, is the academic report, which is a scientific reflection of the style of writing used to produce the articles from South America. Recent development of narrative journalism is a key, and a focus of the thesis. Tom Wolfe published in 1973 a now famous book: “The New Journalism”. Since then, this book has been seen as an institutionalised framework of a new style of writing - a narrative style using elements from the literary world. Since the seventies this style has developed further, in different directions, and today there exist several styles rooted in this writing, all of which are using elements of the narrative tradition. The thesis contains a manifest with new rules, which are used to construct the articles from South America, and the thesis is a reflection of this use. The thesis contains interviews with editors from leading Danish newspapers, and an examination on the how the Danish press has covered the region recently. This is further examined involving theory, which can examine and determine how factors such as education and routines in the media determine the journalistic output.
